Colbert Seems To Indeed Kick Ass

Go to the "Video/Audio" section of C-SPAN quick I'm not sure how long they leave these things up. Steven Colbert spoke at the White House Correspondent's Dinner and he won't be invited back, but it was so worth it!

He was also on 60 Minutes and that was also funny. Kind of goats me into wanting to reevaluate The Colbert Report.

Pope Rethinks This Whole Spreading AIDS Thing

Pope Benedict is talking about allowing the use of condoms amongst married people to try and curb the spread of AIDS. Pope Benedict? More like Pope Liberal McHug-a-jew. If that's what you're into Bendy why don't you support abortion in cases where the life of the mother is endanger or why not turn in priests who've confessed to molesting children. Oh, and maybe we can not relegate gays to the margins of society!

Apparently they don't build popes like they used to.

Today's "Best Song Ever"

The Knife "Marble House"

The antiquated technology of a CD-Walkman or Discman seems to have more trouble with cellphone related interference than my iPod ever did. This almost caused me to throw my week old cell phone out the window of the Staten Island ferry as it was clouding up the sound of "Marble House" one of my favorite tracks from The Knife's Silent Shout.

If the best modern contemporaries for the Knife are Annie's intelectual cheese pop and Mu's mutant disco, "Marble House" sits decidedly closer in the Annie category. Which fits me just fine. I'm a sucker for a good melody.

Download, Listen, Discuss.
